Newman classroom

    207A Newman

The Newman classroom, located in 207A Newman Library, offers 24 student stations and one instructor station: 2 GHz Dell PCs with 3 GB of memory. This classroom can be reserved online. Instructors will want to note the Library Classrooms Policy. Additional chairs are available for larger classes.

We strongly suggest that instructors make arrangements to test software and sample files (particularly if they are not part of the standard setup) prior to the class. Instructors can contact Classroom Management staff to determine when other classes are not scheduled and find time to test software. Classroom Management staff can also demonstrate the operation of the classroom projector and sound system. These preparations will lessen the chances of problems or surprises during the actual class.

Located at the instructor's station is the control panel for the two projectors. The A/V system in this room can present the following:

  • Instructor's PC (or laptop as needed)
  • An Elmo document camera - Used to show books or documents to a class.
  • VHS/DVD - The DVD is region free and can support DVDs from outside the usual region 1 area (such as European and Asian movies).
  • Campus cable - standard cable channels and satellite programming arranged through Communication Network Services.
  • iPad/iPhone streaming via Apple TV - You can wirelessly show anything from an iPad/iPhone. Requires some setup on your device.

The following software is installed as part of the standard setup for this classroom. Instructors who require additional software or sample files will need to give at least ten working days notice to Classroom Management staff to allow time for installation and testing.
